Well, I finally did it. After agonizing for weeks over what kind of computer to get for myself, I just bought one. It's an HP Pavilion laptop.....don't ask me what's on it or any of that stuff. Mr. Head Geek Man at Best Buy helped me when I took the configuration I had made up for one on the HP website to his store.
Bless him.......he was so very patient and kind. He got me all "fixed" and scheduled Mr. Second-in-Command Geek Man to come put it all together for me the end of this week. I even sprung for a new wireless printer.
One of my new year's resolutions -- the one to become more electronically literate -- is on the road to reality. I just hope Windows 7 is simple to learn and navigate. And that all the 1001 things that can go wrong with new equipment of any kind -- but especially computers -- skips by me. Otherwise, I will certainly be bald from pulling my hair out in frustration.
My bank account is in cardiac arrest..........
